TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks rose in early trade on Monday, taking their cue from an upbeat Asian session and with Brexit negotiations due to kick off in Brussels later.

At 0830 BST, the FTSE 100 was up 0.8% to 7,521.58, while the pound was flat against the euro at 1.1418 and versus the pound at 1.2779 as the European Union’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier and UK Brexit secretary David Davis were due to meet in the Belgian capital at 1000 BST.

Neil Wilson, senior market analyst at ETX Capital, pointed out that Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative party is pushing for a hard deal – an exit from the single market and customs union – but said that this carries a large degree of risk.

“As the larger partner, the EU holds the trump cards. The pound would gain some support above the $1.25 level but a lot would depend on the scale of any deal.”
